  5. Measure equal amounts of sugar and add to the pot.
  6. Add butter to pot.
  7. Heat on low, stirring occasionally so the sugar doesn't scorch on the bottom of the pot.
  8. Once the sugar has dissolved turn the heat up to medium high and bring to a boil.
  9. Place a saucer in the freezer.
  10. Cook until marmalade sets.
  11. Check set by dropping a dollop of marmalade on the cold saucer and push the edge with your fingertip.
